About Author:
Michael Narkunski has strong opinions about movies and TV, but but not with plays--with those he's real lenient. He's also a New York City-based playwright. His favorite TV shows often have titles taken from their main female characters: Buffy, Roseanne, Felicity, Xena, Daria. He will create one of his own once he finds a name not too weird and not too common; most likely Ursula. Also, Michael remains an undying fan of Todd Solondz, Mike Leigh, Stanley Kubrick, Charlie Kaufman and anyone else who spun their Jewish straw into a uniquely tortured gold.
